One visit to the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica in the Arenal area, is an experince of a lifetime ,to remember with the whole family. The air is fresh from the nearby jungle, the howler monkeys will wake you on most mornings and then your off to experence a day of fishing Lake Arenal. Guapote ” Rainbow Bass” are the first to strike in the early am, then follows the hard fighting :Machacca” they will thrash you top water lure on most days all day long. The lake can be good fishing all year long depending on the level, lower water means more structure close to shore, which means more fish to find lurking in and around the submerged forest. Some coves are full of old trees that were not removed befor the making of the lake in 1972.
